The Black Diamond First Strike Junior trekking poles combine double FlickLock adjustability, comfortable foam grips and great value in an easy-to-use size that's perfect for kids and short adults.


Black Diamond designed its Kids' First Strike Trekking Pole primarily for trekking, but your young adventurer can also use it for ski sessions. Its aluminum shaft makes the pole incredibly lightweight so your little trekker doesn't feel weighed down near the end of the hike. The foam grip adds a bit of insulation to help warm your kid's hand up in winter, and its 360 padded webbing strap makes each pole specific to his or her left and right hands. One FlickLock clamp adjusts the pole for easy transport and for steep uphill and downhill hikes, and the Tech Tips are interchangeable with rubber or carbide tips depending on the terrain your little traveler is exploring.


A 4-season, full-featured adjustable kids' pole, the Black Diamond First Strike Trekking Pole features a FlickLock adjustment that allows the pole to grow with its owner or as the terrain dictates.


Your child's trekking poles shouldn't be outgrown after just one season. This four-season pole adjusts easily with our FlickLocks to match any activity-or your kid's latest growth spurt. The rubber grip fits small hands, and the animal graphics make finding the right length easy and fun.
